Abstract
A FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR ESTABLISHING A FACILITY FOR MANUFACTRUING CERAMIC FERRULES FOR FIBER OPTIC CONNECTORS. ALL SUCH FERRULES ARE CURRENTLY MANUFACTURED OVERSEAS BY CERAMIC EXTRUSION AND DIAMOND GRINDING, WHICH IS A LABOR INTENSIVE PROCESS. THIS STUDY WILL DETERMINE THE CAPITAL AND PROCESSING REQUIREMENTS FOR ESTABLISHING A FACILITY TOMANUFACTURE CERAMIC FERRULES IN HIGH VOLUMES UTILIZING A UNIQUE, PROPRIETARY LOW PRESSURE CERAMIC INJECTION MOLDING SYSTEM WHICH HAS ALREADY BEEN DEMONSTRATED SUITABLE FOR PRODUCING PROTOTYPE QUANTITIES OF NET SHAPE CERAMIC FERRULES.
